I am a classicist specializing in Latin literature. I also teach Greek and various courses in classical civilization. I am primarily interested in finding good digital formats for commentaries on classical works. But I also use technology a fair bit in my language classes, so language pedagogy is a big focus for me as well. My technology experience is all haphazard and ad hoc (ad hack?). I have done a lot with Mediawiki, and WordPress, but the project I direct is migrating to Drupal. I know nothing about TEI, cannot tie my shoes in html. For more technical stuff I collaborate with the great IT folks at Dickinson. But I'm open to learning more about anything that will make our project succeed. I have been collaborating with students for several years on digital humanities projects, and am curious to see what models are out there to make this work as well as possible.
